Hurricane Irma Update
After inspecting the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, including by professional drone, we can thankfully report only minor damage from Hurricane Irma. The new roof performed perfectly, but the wind found a few new places to push some water into the tower. These will need further investigation and repair. Astragal frames that hold the triangular weather glass will also need repairing and repainting. Once again the hurricane collected beach sand and literally “sandblasted” a few areas of paint on the bricks and mortar – those painted both black and red. This will require a hanging swing stage to access the areas under the gallery deck. We are grateful that the Razorback LLC team will be back to assess, repair and repaint all damage caused by Irma along with our maintenance chief.
Other hurricane damage at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum included shingle damage to the museum roof and one of the site houses, and substantial landscaping damage. All artifacts were packed up and put in safe storage prior to the storm and over 600 hurricane shutters were installed to protect our historic buildings.
We are open for Lighthouse tours, including the new Keepers Workshop exhibit, and the Tindall Pioneer Homestead. The Museum remains closed until September 27, 2017.
